If you're a true fan of college football, than you'll agree that there's
nothing better than watching an underdog go into a hostile environment on the road
and pull of an upset. The emotion, thrill, and excitement of that stunning victory
can be a rush. With the balance of power constantly changing on the gridiron, upsets
are going to remain a huge part of the game Â– which is good for a couple of reasons.
First, it makes college football worth watching. How much fun would it be if the
favorite won all the time? None! Second, and most important, as a professional
sports handicapper, you salivate when you see upsets happen because you know easy
money is on the horizon. Please consider this powerful system:
PLAY AGAINST any college football home underdog or favorites
of -3 or less provided they won their last game straight up as a road underdog of
+6 or more. Since 1980, teams in this role are a wallet-breaking 108-156 ATS.
Right off the bat that's a very profitable 59.0 percent system covering 264
If you think about this general system for a second it makes perfect sense. After
pulling off this shocking upset, a team returns home only to find itself an underdog
or barely favored. What that tells you right there is you probably don't have
the best 11 guys on the field! If you did have the better team, the linemaker would
have installed them at a much higher price especially off that straight up underdog
win! Fortunately for us, one school is locked into this "play against"
situation on Saturday: Kent. Last week, the Golden Flashes (+6.5) went right into
Falcons country and shocked Bowling Green by the score of 38-3! Now, on Saturday,
Kent finds itself a +2.5 home dog to Akron. That means the Golden Flashes fit this
There are a couple of powerful tighteners that make this week's system even
more profitable. Here's the best one. If our gracious host is matched up against
an opponent that owns a won/loss percentage of .600 or less, the results of this
technical situation crumble to a shocking 37-64 ATS. That's 63.3 percent winners!
Kent is locked into this play against tightener!
The Zips won the MAC last season and they'll be primed to show the Golden Flashes
that they are the best team in the conference. Good luck with Akron this week!
